New York and Minnesota are tied for the second-best record in baseball at 22-12, so it should be a good series. I’m actually feeling oddly optimistic about the Twins’ chances despite their being 16-50 against the Yankees under Ron Gardenhire.
Alex Bregman shaved his mustache off in the middle of Sunday’s game
Astros third baseman Alex Bregman apparently wasn’t happy with his mustache on Sunday afternoon as he shaved it off in between innings during his team’s contest against the Royals. Bregman walked and later scored in the Astros’ eight-run second inning, but when he took his next plate appearance in the fourth inning, he was clean-shaven.
